Psychology is in crisis owing to the pernicious influences of celebrity and money.
Scientists are claiming expertise when and where they have none.
Many are "massaging" the results of experiments (replication crisis).
Making unfounded claims based on flimsy or non-existent evidence Abusing their authority.
Molecular Biology fundamentalists (Sapolsky BOOK) are grandiose and grossly misleading, I cringe.
Some of the problems: correlation not causation, reductionism and ignorance (empathy not narcissism), contradictory results, not enough known, environmental triggering (nurture, not nature), replicability issues, inflated ill-founded claims.
Examples: antidepressants and DSM.
